  • Lake Ozark Helicopters Inc
    Lake Ozark Helicopters shepherds tour-goers in FAA-certified ethereal steeds over the scenic Lake of the Ozarks State Park, Missouri’s largest state park. Stratospheric sojourners undergo a safety briefing before embarking on the aerial adventure. During the 26- to 30-mile tour, passengers enjoy window views as they soar over the glistening Lake of the Ozarks, whiz over the Bagnell Dam, and catch sights of deposed wizards filching gold bricks from Million Dollar Row. The Robinson R-44 four-seater zips through the atmosphere over Shawnee Bend and Grand Glaize Bridge as an experienced guide delivers local area information via voice-activated headsets worn by each passenger. After the motorized bird touches down to earth, staff members unlock the helicopter doors and allow passengers to exit with a jubilant flap of the arms.

  • Paradise Parasail
    Since launching off from the shores of Fort Myers Beach in 1982, Paradise Parasail’s signature smiley-face parachutes have become an iconic image in the sky, now flying high above the waters of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Lake of the Ozarks. USCG-licensed captains navigate each of the company's boats as riders trail behind at heights of up to 500 feet. With feet flopping in the wind, thrill-seekers are free to wave to their friends, family, and nearby migratory birds. Parasailers can also pose for photos and videos captured by the company's onboard photographers.

  • Missouri River Wine Trail
    Six wineries make up the Missouri River Wine Trail. They all sit alongside or near the Missouri River, so the trail makes for a scenic drive between locations?and a quick one, too, as none are more than 30 minutes away from one another. The wineries include Les Bourgeois Vineyards, where guests may meet cats Jeunette Rouge, Valvin, and Tannin who protect the barrels from bacchanalian laser pointers, and Bushwhacker Bend Winery, where enophiles can relax on a patio overlooking the river. Missouri River Wine Trail's tours are all self-guided, and most center on themes such as barbecue for Father's Day and local herbs that pair well with wines.

  • Hard Times Ballooning
    Beneath the looming curve of a balloon rippling from the heat of a 12-million BTU propane burner, FAA-certified Lighter Than Air pilot and mechanic Layne Wolters takes hot air balloons soaring into the Missouri skies with the skills only years of experience can build. Possessing more than three decades of involvement with the larger-than-life balloons, Wolters mans daily flights at Hard Times Ballooning, ascending at sunrise and 2 1/2 hours before sunset for the best views of superheroes flying to and from home in their street clothes.

  • Necropolis Haunted House
    NecroPlanet’s trifecta of eerie attractions paints a bleak portrait of Earth’s future: organized society has buckled, and chaos reigns over the desolate landscape. Necropolis, the fright site's signature haunt, acts as a factory that rises from the debris and houses evil spirits thirsty for living souls. The creatures that lurk in The Pit, a haunted house that must be navigated in total darkness, succumb to a sinister hunger for human flesh or more quality daytime soap operas. The final haunted labyrinth, Chaos in 3D, highlights the horror of nuclear waste and radiation smoldering beneath the wreckage for awestruck guests wearing 3-D glasses.

  • The Cooper's Oak Winery
    The Cooper’s Oak Winery is located on the premises of A&K Cooperage, proprietor of fine American and French oak barrels. This isn't a coincidence—the winery uses those high-quality barrels as vessels for its blended and specialty varietals. The barrels' contribution is clear in sips of the Toasted Oak, a cabernet sauvignon mixed with merlot and aged in heavily toasted oak, and the Triple Oak Bliss, a dark and bold red blend of three domestic grapes, aged in American oak emblazoned with tasty smiley faces. Cooper’s also crafts sweet blush wine, a vidal ice wine, and a French hybrid vignoles.
